Covering the media bases: BizMojo on the air soon

I recently got an email from Tim Lewis, Riverbend Communications' news program director, asking if I'd like to go on the air with him to talk about local business.

Naturally my answer was yes, for promotional reasons and for the fun of it. Expanding to radio adds another medium to the BizMojo Idaho profile, which already has Web (blog, Facebook and Twitter) and print (Idaho Falls Magazine) in tow. I'm to report for duty Tuesday morning at 8:05. We will be on Newstalk 690 and 1260, on the a.m. dial.

What I'd like in advance is some questions you'd like me to answer or address. Like Shoptalk before it, my approach to this blog is to tell people what they want to know, give it to them short and sweet and make them feel like they're part of the conversation.

Also, please show some understanding if I say "uh" or "y'know" too much as I try to get my thoughts together on the air. I'm glad my mother won't be listening, y'know, because she's been on my case about it for more than 40 years. And for my dear wife's sake, I must remember to irrigate my sinuses.

We're looking at 15 minutes, people. I wonder how long it's going to seem as it happens.
